DENVER, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new website and app are the first to allow viewers of elimination-based reality TV shows to compete with friends by earning points when predicting show winners, similar to fantasy football. WhoStays (www.whostays.com) has now launched from beta mode, already with 1,500 registered users. A WhoStays app is available via the Apple® app store for iPod®, iPhone® and iPad®. WhoStays delivers second screen interactivity via social gaming which leads to greater enjoyment of elimination-based reality TV.
This reality TV game app and website lets users sign up anytime, even mid-season due to a focus on weekly competitions. Users can invite friends or simply compete in an open-format across the world. Just before the end of the show users receive a notification that it's time to enter their predictions. Based on their correct predictions, points are earned allowing users to compare how they did against their friends or the world (once the show has finished airing in all time zones).
Now reality TV show viewers have a Survivor game app, The Bachelor game app, a Big Brother game app, and more, along with a full website to play too. Currently, WhoStays supports scoring for the following TV shows: American Idol®; Dancing with the Stars®; Fashion Star®; Hell's Kitchen®; Project Runway®; Ready for Love®; RuPaul's Drag Race®; Splash®; Survivor®; The Amazing Race®; All-Star Celebrity Apprentice®; The Voice®; Big Brother®; and The Bachelorette®.
